This is my book club's current selection. I stopped reading on page 114 (of 248). I usually read the books for book club, but I really couldn't get through this one. It is a poorly written evangelical Christian story, and I'm not a Christian. I was surprised that a book like this was the selection for our book club. It would be different if it was well written, or if the book club was sponsored by a church. But my book club is sponsored by my local public library. Doesn't that imply that it is open to anyone, of any faith (or lack thereof)?
I haven't decided yet whether I'll go to the meeting when the book is discussed; if other members like the book, I might say something that someone would find offensive, and I wouldn't want that. But I am curious what others thought of it. Of course, I also realize that someone reading this entry might take offense. I'm sorry if that's the case.
